Abstract:

Papers of Washington Irving, his brothers Ebenezer Irving and William Irving, his nephews and nieces Pierre P. Irving, Pierre M. Irving, Catherine Anne Irving, and Sarah Irving, and other Irving family members, include correspondence, literary manuscripts, legal papers, wills, passports, contracts, bills and receipts, invitations, deeds, statements, certificates, genealogy, photographs, prints, maps, clippings, and other miscellaneous items. Included in the correspondence are letters from Washington Irving to family and friends, 1813-1859, concerning his literary work, publishing affairs, domestic life, social life, travel experiences, and work on his house Sunnyside; some were written while in diplomatic posts in London, 1829-1832, and in Madrid, 1842-1846. Other items include a diary of a voyage to the Columbia River by Alfred Seton, 1811-1815; diary kept by Susan V.W. Storrow while at Sunnyside, 1863-1864; assessment rolls for the Town of Greenburgh, 1839-1870; and Scottish document relating to the Irving family, 1585.

Collection also includes diaries, journals, letters, scrapbook, and other papers of Emma Nicholas Molony (niece of Matilda Hoffman to whom Washington Irving formed a close attachment before her death), her mother Ann Hoffman Nicholas, her grandfather Josiah Ogden Hoffman, Charles Fenno Hoffman, Julia Hoffman, Eliza Storrs, and other family and friends, 1802-1858; in addition to family life, these papers concern attendance at Hamilton Institute (1829-1833) and Emma's move to Illinois.
